–The LLP Desk
All over the World today, the sudden rise of the Coronavirus disease and its expected pandemic panic has caused a change, sudden change too in Lifestyle.

Mike Jhon, who is currently in New York captured an always busy Manhattan, surprisingly there was not a single soul in sight! This was at 4.55PM Nigerian time. Empty streets.
Deb Riechmann was even quoted on Hartford Courant saying President Donald Trump is recommending that the government takes partial ownership of companies bailed out in the Coronavirus pandemic, a step that would mark an extraordinary federal reach into the private sector. He also held out hope that treatments for COVID-19 might be at hand, voicing far more optimism about quick therapies than federal scientists have expressed.
Trump sought to calm the public’s fears as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. climbed above 11,000, with at least 168 deaths. He gave an upbeat promotion of therapeutic drugs in early testing that he said could be “a game-changer and maybe not” in treating those suffering with COVID-19.
Adel Nabil in Times Square, New York shared the same views with photographs of empty streets. Now, if you are a New Yorker, you would recall that out there these streets never sleep. New York never really sleeps. The streets are always buzzing and glowing with movements of humans and machinery from dusk till dawn. A system that runs asuch thereby turning in huge sums as revenue.

Across border in Canada, according to Yvonne Ikwueme who shared photos with The LLP Desk on the 16th March, 2020, an always busy University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon Campus-Canada, was frozen with not a single person in sight. From the entry point of the School to the Schools library, all deserted due to the Coronavirus scare, and of course, an order from the Government to shut down facilities that might cause a likely spread, thereby containing the dreaded Covid-19.
In our earlier article on the platform, we spoke about the Coronavirus and wondering if Nostradamus’ predictions had anything to do with this plague-like illness.

Countries like Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa and others are spending Billions in their Currency to drive the best solutions, obviously to get the best results. Recently, China deployed some it’s finest Medical Personnel to Italy to contain the pandemic as technical as they could.
